Story

I am delighted to be joining BEAT as a trustee!   I thought I would get off to a good start as a trustee by putting my feet where my heart is and tackling a tough 18 day attempt on the 620 km GR5.  The route has an average of 34km of hiking and 2000+ meters of climbing every day.  Given I am still recovering from an ongoing back injury and shin splints, I think this is going to be tough!   

I would love your support!!!  I am getting started on June 20 and would love to hit my fundraising goal before I get started.  I will match the final amount of the donations :-)

Updates will be provided with appropriate humour and photos on my blog (www.onlymyfootprints.com)
